High Five for Friday

Happy Friday, friends! It’s officially spring and I couldn’t be more pleased! Now if only I could put away my winter coats for good, I’d be one seriously happy girl. That and finally clearing my kids of colds and winter illnesses for good! They both got hit with awful colds on Monday, so we’ve been making it through the week with a little less sleep and a lot more coughing! My husband came down with it as well, so I am the only healthy one around here doing my best to remain sane.

Despite the not so fun part of my week, here’s a glimpse at some of the lovelier things that happened:

I’m in love with the color and the fact that it can be worn as a dress, a tunic, dressed up or down sold me even more. It had been a few years since I had been to one of these parties and I’m so glad I decided to go. If you aren’t familiar with the concept, it’s basically a home show where the clothes come to you. If you live in the area (central, PA that is), I’d be more than happy to introduce you to a consultant.

H54F32125. I’ll leave you with a shot of this deliciousness that I made for a friend’s birthday this week (turns out she’s gluten free and couldn’t even eat a piece, but it’s the thought that counts, no?). I’ll have a full post for you next week, but for now you can just imagine the sweet smell coming through your screen ;)

Have a fantastic weekend!

    So many pretties up there! Love the flowers, definitely the nail polish, and that dress is so cute! Very springy this week :) Also, I’d like to dive into that sweet yumminess at the bottom – looks delish! Happy Friday!
